CB October 22nd 2008 (with Tom Burgess)


Tom Burgess joined me in the studio this week. Tom first came to the show’s attention earlier this year as frontman of The Mod Cons. Having struck out on his own a couple of months back, he’s been popping up at various venues around Essex (with more to come before the end of the year) including The Railway Hotel in Southend, home of many a rock’n’roll shenanigan as we found out! You can hear more of Tom’s music and find out where to see him live at
